Momi Ramen – East Hampton

This weekend I tried Momi Ramen in East Hampton, New York. I have been to the Momi restaurants in Miami and was super excited to try their new restaurant in Long Island. I had an order of Gyoza and an order of Tan Tan Ramen. Both dishes were very tasty and delicious. The restaurant is fun—it has a giant television with a sports game on for the whole restaurant to see and a large communal table. They quickly served the juicy pan-fried pork gyoza which came all connected with a crunchy layer on each of the dumplings. They had a nice soft outside and a tasty sweet and tangy soy sauce-like dipping sauce. Next, I had the ramen which was soothingly warm on the freezing cold day. It was very, very good. The noodles have a slightly al dente bite; they are firm but hold the flavor of the spicy soup well. With the garlic and pepper marinated bits of minced pork and scallions floating in the almost red-colored broth, the dish was very flavorful. The ramen had a nice solid spice and made for a great meal. I highly recommend you go try Momi Ramen as soon as possible.

This Little Piggy Had Roast Beef — Roast Beef Sandwich

This Little Piggy Had Roast Beef is a very small hole-in-a-wall type establishment that specializes in roast beef sandwiches. You can eat there or take out, but it is probably better for take out.

You can choose from several types of roast beef as well as other sandwiches, and then you pick if you want a roll or a hero. I tried the “This Way” sandwich and the “That Way” version – among other things, one had Cheese Whiz on it and the other had fresh, melted Mozzarella. I ordered them both on a roll and loved them. The sandwiches are hot and fresh. If you are hungry for roast beef, you should definitely try this place.
